Dear Brother and Sister Gubler:
Thank you so much for your letter of August 17 reminding me of meeting you years ago at the Fresno Temple Dedication. I must admit that Elder Gubler still "looks like a great missionary." What a wonderful experience for him to be able to work with another handsome Elder Gubler as they serve the people in the Mexico Merida Mission.
The next time you write to him, please let him know I am proud of him. There is nothing he could be doing right now that is more important for him than this service as a missionary.
Warm personal regards,
M. Russell Ballard
